Overview


Hilary Price is a modern James Thurber . . . in a B-cup. When readers flip through this cartoon collection, they’ll see their own foibles called to the carpet. Perfect for a gift book or commode companion, each of the eleven topics — including Pets, Love, and Play — is treated to its own distinct book, complete with author commentary on different strips, and their funny (or odd) back stories. Twice nominated for the best cartoon panel division of the National Cartoonist’s Society, Rhymes With Orange appeals to the smart, attractive, and well-read, all with buckets of money to spend on books. “Hilary Price is one of the freshest voices the comic strip industry has seen in years. Her innocent, pastoral-like artwork blended with the diction and wit of an English major make for one of the best comic strips out there.” — Dave Coverly, Speed Bump cartoonist
